Windows 7: Small font size

08 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

According to this CLEVO M761SU 15.4 LAPTOP SCREEN | Laptop Screens | LCD Screen | Notebook Screen | Netbook Screen, the maximum resolution for your screen is 1280 x 800.

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

If the OP has a resolution of 1680x1050, then the screen is an WSXGA+ type and not an WXGA type. I imagine there was a choice is what screen a certain model comes with like mine did. And a 15" monitor with the above resolution is nothing special.

However it appears the company in question no longer sells this laptop.

Windows 7 x64

Apparently they weren't thinking on windows 7, as you could see on my screenshot.
But changing the resolution to 1280x800 and leaving DPI on 100 helped a lot, it now looks much more like my image on win xp.
I will use it like this since this is the best configuration i was able to make until now.
Let's wait for developers to enable Windows DPI on apps. Now that i think most of applications working fine were the ones made by microsoft: msn messenger, office, IE and few others.

Thanks a lot to everyone who replyed
